Dear members of the Global Autism Project community,

While it is hard to find the right words to describe the outrage and grief over the violent and senseless death of yet another black person, we understand the importance of taking a stand for justice in this moment. The Global Autism Project is founded on the values of inclusion and equity and we will not sit back in silence in the face of such intolerance and disregard for the lives of black people. We condemn all acts of hatred, prejudice, and racism. 

As we join you in solidarity, we, as an organization will actively be supporting the black community by engaging in these important dialogues and not turning a blind eye to your pain. We are committed to working with you to create a world that is truly free, just, and equitable for all. Our very own CEO has started a social media group for all people who want to take action and learn.

Our hearts go out to everyone in our community dealing with the pain and fear over losing their lives and those of their loved ones. We are here to let you know that we acknowledge your feelings, we see you, we hear you, we value  you and we stand with you –  now and always! 

Thank you.

Global Autism Project
